Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: A thin, unconvincing movie made likable by the charm and skill of its cast and by a script peppered with wit and insight.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Thursday, August 25, 2011
Fresh: Rudd brings color and dimension to a borderline-simpleton schlub who could have easily become a one-note clich.
- Alexis Loinaz, Chicago Tribune, Saturday, September 3, 2011
Fresh: It's a warm, intelligent and highly contemporary comedy with just the right amount of edge, a terrific ensemble cast and a big, fuzzy golden retriever ready to knock you down and lick you like a giant lollipop.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Thursday, August 25, 2011
My Idiot Brother is an offbeat comedy that has a great cast, but it's a little too formulaic and cut-and-dry to be better than "okay". Keep in mind that it's more subtle than slapstick, and you'll be fine. Especially if you're a Paul Rudd fan (like I am).

Whereas most comedies these days go for the easy laughs and recycled shtick, "Our Idiot Brother" does something completely different. It strives to be the sweetest, fuzziest, most warm-hearted R rated comedy imaginable and completely succeeds! The film is as light as a feather, but the stellar cast makes it memorable and ring true. The best feel-good film to come around in some time.
